Mont Redmond was born in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada in 1958. After studying at the University of Toronto, interrupted by a youth exchange program that took him to Indonesia, Mont returned to Southeast Asia in 1979. Following two years in Indonesia and a one-year stay in India, Mont arrived in Thailand, where he remained almost continuously for the next 16 years.
Throughout the years of trying various types of work (teaching English, exporting, importing, editing a tourist publication, etc.) and raising a family, Mont lived close to the local Thai community in Bangkok. These experiences enabled him to learn fluent Thai, both written and spoken, and to crystallize his observations in "Wondering into Thai Culture" – a book now in its fourth printing.
Mont and his family moved to Canada in 1998 for the sake of his children's education. He now lives in London, Ontario, and is once again struggling to understand the community in which he lives.
